I can’t think of a better spot for Sean Millar to play than the Project Arts Centre. He straddles the gap between theatre and music nicely, so it’s really the perfect place. He is known in some parts for his involvement Brokentalkers in Blue Boy and Silver Stars, and in others he’s know for his solo work and the album C48, which received a number of rave reviews.
Tickets are available from the Projects Arts Centre web site for €15 or there’s an early bird offer with tickets for only €12 if bought by the end of today! Get clicking…
Dylan Tighe plays support on the night, another man that has more than dabbled in the theatre world, having been on the boards in the Abbey and in a number of Pan Pan’s productions.
Sean Millar’s new album C48 was released 23 Sept on Mass Market Recordings, the follow up to 2010’s acclaimed album ‘Of the people’ and his sixth album to date. The album has deservedly gained widespread acclaim with Metro Herald calling the album “a triumph”, Hot Press “a masterpiece” and Irish Mail on Sunday “prescribed listening”. As a result, Sean has a busy schedule for 2014 with a US tour penned in for early spring including SXSW and Folk Alliance appearances and a theatre tour of Ireland for the autumn. Before then he will visit Germany and The Netherlands for concerts and festival appearances in November while back home continuing with his music for theatre work, Sean has been commissioned by ‘Theatre Club’ as composer and music director on their new show ‘History’ which will be staged in Dublin’s Project in December.
As an accomplished and highly regarded composer for music and theatre, Seán has also gained widespread acclaim from international media and audiences from the US to Russia and across Europe to Australia and New Zealand for his sell-out theatre shows Brokentalkers ‘Blue Boy’ (powerfully physical, haunting material Financial Times) and the self penned ‘Silver Stars’ (theatre of breathtaking insight and artistry Irish Independent). Seán’s musical career has spanned over 2 decades and as a respected collaborative artist in communities in Dublin’s inner city he has worked projects including Fringe Festival 2013 with Dublin’s RADE programme to stage ‘The Last Ten Years’ in St Patrick’s Cathedral. It was praised as “a startling work” by The Examiner and “a compelling piece of politically engaged art” by the Irish Times and was nominated for the Spirit of the Fringe Award.
